7. There were four brothers and sisters living together. The __________________ ideas on cleanliness were different.
1.brother’s and sister’s
2.brothers and sisters
3.brothers and sisters’
4.brothers’ and sisters’
which one is the correct answer and why?>

Saturday, May 11th 2019

    Number four. Brothers and sisters are plurals in the original sentence, so “brothers’ and sisters'” is the correct form. These two have the apostrophe because their ideas on cleanliness are different.

Saturday, May 11th 2019

“James’s cat is striped” (???) Because it’s not plural?

Thank you!

Monday, May 13th 2019

Thank you, James, for your brightness explanation.
Besides, I have a question about one moment in your quiz during the video: Doesn’t the expression “all of” refer specifically to colors, not to rooms?

Monday, May 13th 2019

Dear James, you’re so funny and well prepared for it!
Great lesson!

Monday, May 13th 2019

Hello James
Thank you for this lesson .
I can’ t understand why in question 2 we must add an s after Charles .
Why not simply write Charles’ house .
Thank you for your answer
See you

Hello again James
Can I say ”we will meet at john’s ” instead of saying at john’s house ?
See you

Tuesday, May 14th 2019

    I think it depends on the conversation that you are involved in. the true is to say John’s house but if you are in advance talking about the houses of different people that you may meet in and someone said ” we will meet at John’s ” so this is also true in such a case

    Tuesday, May 14th 2019

Thanks

Hey James nice Brazilian socks…. Your class was awesome as always and when will you do a lesson about Canadian cities’ pronunciations it would be cool to know how to say Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal or Quebec and so on correctly…… anyway greetings from my city Surco..

Very tricky!

Mr.E left his pen on a table.
2 groups of girls’have many shoes
Right now I’m using his phone.

Are my sentences correct ??

Saturday, June 15th 2019

    I’m not a professional but i think the second sentence is incorrect. I think “2 girls’ groups …” will be better.

    Sunday, August 23rd 2020

      Thanks, it’s normal to make mistake and it’s beautiful to have someone correct you

      Or we can say” look to these girls they’re buying so many shoes”

      Sunday, August 30th 2020

        Sure,np
        How is your English?

          Wednesday, September 2nd 2020

This is Mr.E’s pen (if somebody has found it)
These are the two girls groups’ shoes. (pretty difficult ^^”)
I love theirs house.

Are my sentences correct ?

Thursday, June 20th 2019

It’s a difficult concept to understand, specially for plurals. Anyhow, thank you James.

Friday, June 21st 2019

Thanks

Friday, June 21st 2019

Thanks teach for enlightening my confused mind ’bout this.

Saturday, June 22nd 2019

Hey Mr.James , Thanks alot . You are the best teacher that I’ve ever seen in google chrom😱 . Tnx👍

Sunday, June 23rd 2019

Hi Sir James!
I loved your lesson, like always, but I’m a little bit confused. Didn’t you say that when a noun ends in S it’s not supposed to add another one, but only the apostrophe?

In this question why the right answer is the first option?

2. I have a good friend named Charles. I’m going to _____________ house after school.

Charles’s
Charles
Charle’s
Thank you so much for your help!

Tuesday, June 25th 2019

Marwan’s answers are a perfect.

6. _______________ cats had opposite personalities.

Oksanas and Jaquelines
Oksana’s and Jaqueline’s
Oksana and Jaqueline’s
Oksanas’ and Jaquelines’
can’t both 2 and 4 be correct? how do we know both have a single cat?

Monday, August 12th 2019

Dear Pr James,
May I ask you some help about the 2nd sentence of your quiz.
I don’t understand this particular answer: “Charles’ is also used by some people”.
Why here did you put ‘ apostrophe after Charles at the beginning of your answer?

2. I have a good friend named Charles. I’m going to _____________ house after school.
Charles’s
Charles
Charle’s
Charles’ is also used by some people.

I have “a good” (he is only one) friend named Charles . I’m going to Charles’ house after school. (my friend).

In my mind the answer is “Charles’ house” because is singular and my friend.
Thank you again for your help

I was a little confused with the word ‘apostraphe’ written on the board (top left), then I checked the spelling in the dictionary. Thanks for the lesson, it was bright and clear as usually. :)

Thursday, August 29th 2019

A very useful lesson. Thank you a lot!

Greetings,
i would like to mention that i got 6/8. I made a mistakes in 2 and 7 question.
In 2 i didn’t know that it is possible to have two “s” beside to it.
In 7 … I didn’t noticed that the sentence was about brothers and sisters. I mean “as plural”
Thank you James for this great lesson.

I wish you all the best in English learning.

Ps. James’s tie is nice. It suits him.
No more confused :) Thank you again :)

Sunday, December 15th 2019

One more thing.
I think It would be more common to say that:
“I thought that all the rooms colors were great, while she thought that only the bedroom color was nice.”
Am i right? It sounds more common at least to me?
I know you wanted to give us an example but i just want to know.

Could this be and example?

I know a man whose all of cars’ colours are dark. I mean almost black. I assume his favorite color is black.

Monday, December 16th 2019

100% correct. Thanks James

His muscles are very big.

I hope my sentences are correct.

Sunday, August 23rd 2020

There’s always something new to learn, I was always using the apostrophe by guessing, now I’m completely sure when to use it, thanks Mr. James.
